Ben comes home after a fight and refuses to tell his sons who he fought with. Worried that he's getting too old to hunt rustlers, the boys suggest he stay home and take it easy while they go hunt for the rustlers themselves. But soon, they are being shot at by the rustlers and can do nothing but wait for Ben to come rescue them. Written by Michelle P.
